Commonwealth Health Wilkes-Barre General Hospital held an open house in February to introduce its new outpatient infusion department. The 3,500-square-foot area on the hospital’s second floor has been renovated and is being used for numerous infusion procedures including chemotherapy, blood draws from central lines, bone marrow biopsy, therapeutic phlebotomy, administration of blood and blood products, intramuscular injections and other bedside procedures ordered by physicians.
